Breaking News: Play Day is Scheduled for Sunday April 9th and Saturday April 15th. Opening Night is Scheduled for April 22nd.
I have had a lot of calls this week on the tire rules at Spoon for 2017 so here they are:
UMP Modifieds Only approved tire will be the M-30S, A-40S, M-60 and H-40. The M-60 and H-40 may be used as a RR tire option.... NO GROOVING Allowed on any tire. No Siping or Grooving M-30S Siping permitted on M-60 when used on RR. The A-40S and H-40 will NO longer be made after March 1st, 2017. Siping is permitted on the A-40S and H-40 until out of circulation during 2017.
E-Mods May use A-40S, A-40, H-40, M-30S. NO Grooving Allowed on any tire NO Grooving or Siping Allowed on M-30S M-60 may be used in future but not allowed at this time.
UMP Pro L/M M40 tire ONLY After May 30th NO Grooving or Siping Allowed on Rear tires. In 2018 there will be No Grooving or Siping of any tire.
UMP Super L/M Tire rules will be the same as Fairbury unless stated otherwise.
Spoon 6-Shooters May use USED A-40, A-40S or H-40 tires. NO new race tires allowed
We just received a letter from UMP stating: *Participation in a DIRTcar sanctioned division in 2017 will require a license. NO EXCEPTIONS. *Divisions that do not have 100% membership will lose the sanction. *A one-week temporary (for the traveler) will be accepted provided the driver completes the full application. (Temp one week memberships do not qualify for Insurance and Appeal benefits) *There is not a calendar date deadline. It is absolute and immediate....
With this being said Spoon will comply 100% with this statement.
On Saturday Feb 11th from 12 to 2 at the VFW in Canton, for ONE DAY ONLY we will be giving any UMP Driver or crew member a $15 discount on your UMP license.
I believe it's worth it to buy one even if your not in a UMP sanction class for the extra $50,000 in insurance money.
Hope to see you tomorrow at the VFW in Canton.
Please share so all can see.
Thank You SRS Promoter Brad Denney
